|NASA Connect - Rocket to The Stars - NASA LaRC Office of Education|
NASA Connect video containing four segments as described following. First segment of Rocket to the Stars defines work and energy using the concepts of force, motion, distance, mass, height, and gravity. The work and energy segment covers the Gravitational Potential energy,and Kiinetic Energy equations. The Work and Energy segment next provides a problem that involves the calculation of the Kinetic Energy of 2 different rovers on the planet Mars...
